Photographer's Note

Early in Israel's autumn, the first sign is the blossom of the Squills, for short period only as for a month.
As far as I know, this is the only location in my hometown, amid it's urban environment, that this rare occurance is happening - mostly you might see it on rural country.
In most cases it rises to about 120cm, but I heared about 2m+ "champs" as well.
Normally, this plant is can't be grow by cultivation, in a garden or in a pot, because it has a bulb-corm deep beneath surface.
By the way, the second autumnal sign is the arrival of the Motacilla-Alba, the Nachlieli, which I did not see yet this year.
Scientific latin name:Drimia.

RAW converted into JPEG, in the WS is a close-up macro on the Squill.
